Do You Need Underlay for Vinyl Flooring?

Do You Need Underlay for Vinyl Flooring?

Vinyl flooring is a fantastic material for your kitchen or bathroom. Hardwearing, waterproof, and with high slip resistance, vinyl provides a range of great practical benefits whilst also looking beautiful. But if you’ve never laid vinyl flooring before, you might have questions. What exactly is vinyl flooring? What’s the best way to install it? And do you need underlay for vinyl flooring?

In this blog post, we’ll answer all of these questions. Read on to discover how you can bring the benefits of vinyl into your home.

What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring is made from polyvinyl chloride, a synthetic polymer. Sometimes also known as linoleum or lino, vinyl has long been a popular choice in our kitchens and bathrooms. This is because it’s easy to clean and highly durable, making it ideal for high traffic areas in the home.

Do you need underlay for vinyl flooring?

No, you do not need underlay for vinyl flooring. Although you will need an underlay for wood, carpet, or laminate, you can apply your vinyl flooring onto your floor directly. This is partly thanks to the design of PVC panels, which usually feature a base layer that acts as an inbuilt underlay.

If your floors are in particularly bad condition, you may choose to put down an underlay for added support, protection, and insulation. But if your floors are okay, this won’t be necessarily. In fact, you can even install our Simplex vinyl flooring on top of existing panels or tiles!

How do you install vinyl flooring panels?

Installing our vinyl floor panels is quick and easy. Available in packs of eight, each of our panels measure 305 mm x 610 mm. You can cut the panels to size using a fine-toothed jigsaw or handsaw to create the perfect fit.

Unlike our PVC wall panels, you won’t need any adhesive to install our Simplex vinyl flooring. That means there’s no prep or curing process required – all you need to do is click our panels into place using the handy tongue and groove system. The panels will interconnect to provide a tight fit, smooth finish, and solid floor. Simplex by name, simple by design!

What are the benefits of vinyl flooring?

As well as being beginner-friendly and easy to install, vinyl flooring comes with a range of benefits. These include:

  • High slip resistance, ideal for damp areas such as kitchens or bathrooms.
  • Water resistance prevents damage to the underlying floor and removes the need for an underlay.
  • Hardwearing surface makes vinyl flooring perfect for busy family homes.

A Guide to Bathroom Wall Panel Sizes

A Guide to Bathroom Wall Panel Sizes

Tempted to try bathroom wall panels but not sure what size to choose? PVC wall panels are one of the quickest and easiest ways to update your bathroom, but if you haven’t used them before, you might be wondering which size is best for your home.

In this blog post, we’ve put together a handy guide to the different bathroom wall panel sizes we stock at Igloo Surfaces. Whatever the shape and size of your bathroom, read on to find your perfect fit today.

Can I cut my bathroom wall panels to size?

Yes, you can cut your bathroom wall panels to size. Don’t worry if you read through the dimensions below and think that nothing will fit your bathroom. Most PVC panels on the market are designed to fit standard measurements, but the reality is many rooms won’t fit the brief!

From irregular windows to alcoves and sloping ceilings, there are many features that might require you to customise your panels before installing them. Thankfully, it’s quick and easy to do. All you’ll need is a fine-toothed hand saw or jigsaw to cut your chosen panels to size.

What size panels do we stock?

1.    Arctic Infinity panels

Looking for showstopping panels that will transform your bathroom? Our Arctic Infinity range is the perfect choice. These bold prints will make breath-taking bathroom feature walls, from a Statue of Liberty scene to a relaxing tropical oasis.

To accommodate the striking designs, Arctic Infinity panels are extra-large, measuring 2,440 mm long x 1,220 mm wide x 2.5 mm thick. They are available individually or in packs of two or three.

While most of our panels are 10 mm thick, these are much thinner. This means they aren’t hollow and don’t feature a tongue and groove system, so you will need to apply seal tape around the edge of each panel to ensure a smooth finish.

2.    Block colour panels

Available in a variety of shades and complete with matching edgings, our block colour panels are our second largest collection. These panels are divided into two categories, ‘striking’ and ‘subtle’ colours, and measure 2,500 mm long x 1,220 mm wide x 2.5 mm thick.

Like our Arctic Infinity panels, our block colour range doesn’t feature a tongue and groove system. They’re still quick and easy to install, especially if you purchase them as part of our shower kits which include all the matching trim, edgings, and adhesive you’ll need.

3.    Standard panels

The majority of our panels may be standard in size, but when it comes to style, they’re anything but! From faux marble to a water droplet design, these panels measure 2,400 mm long x 1,000 mm wide x 10 mm thick. The 1,000 mm with makes it easy to calculate how many panels you need to cover your wall. (Simply divide the width of your wall by the width of your chosen panel).

4.    Tile effect panels

Our tile effect panels are sold in packs of four, each measuring 2,650 mm long x 250 mm wide x 8 mm thick (some designs measure 2,600 mm long and 9 mm thick). The design is spread evenly across all four panels.

Whatever the size of your bathroom, PVC wall panels are quick and easy to fit. Most importantly, they’re water resistant, easy to wipe clean and highly durable for all the usual bathroom bumps and knocks. Find your dream design at Igloo Surfaces today!

3 Reasons to Choose Tile Effect Bathroom Wall Panels

3 Reasons to Choose Tile Effect Bathroom Wall Panels

Classic yet versatile, tiles are some of the most popular materials for bathroom walls and floors. But although they’ve been used in our homes for thousands of years, they’re not always the best choice for your bathroom.

From the expense of the raw materials to the faff of the installation process, there are various downsides to tiles. This is particularly true if you’re working to a budget or don’t have a lot of DIY experience.

Love the look of tiles but not so keen on the technicalities? Tile effect bathroom wall panels are an excellent alternative to more traditional materials. In this blog post, we’ll share three reasons why you should consider choosing tile effect bathroom wall panels for your home.

1. Panels are 100% waterproof

Tiles are usually made from ceramic, porcelain, or stone. Although these materials are waterproof, the grouting in between your tiles can be susceptible to moisture ingress and damp. No matter how often you clean your grouting, it can seem impossible to clean – leaving you with unsightly tiles that look grey, grimy and mouldy.

One of the best things about bathroom wall panels is their water resistance. At Igloo Surfaces, our wall panels are 100% waterproof, helping to protect the wall beneath from mould and mildew. From our faux marble Carrara Décor Tile Effect panels to our Modern Décor Silver Small Tile Effect panels, our collection features a handy tongue and groove system. That means you can easily click the panels into place.

For complete peace of mind, we recommend dabbing a bead of silicone in between your panels. This will seal any gaps and give you 100% protection from damp and damage.

2. Panels are more cost-effective

Did you know the average cost of tiling a bathroom is around £50 per square metre? That doesn’t take into account the price of the tiles themselves! For a more cost-effective solution that doesn’t compromise on appearance, our tile effect bathroom wall panels will give you the look you’re after without the added expense.

At Igloo Surfaces, the majority of our tile effect bathroom wall panels cost around £60 for a pack of four, with each panel measuring around 2,650mm long by 250mm wide.

3. Panels are easy to install

Installing tiles can be loud, messy and expensive. Because it requires specialist tools and expertise, many people prefer to hire a contractor to do the job for them. While this ensures a professional finish, it’s not always an option if you’re working to a budget.

On the other hand, tile effect bathroom wall panels are quick and easy to install yourself. All you’ll need is your choice of panels, a small hand saw or jigsaw, and a tub of our adhesive (available online). This also means you can easily switch up your look if you want to redecorate your bathroom in the future.

Waterproof, cost-effective and easy to install

Want to achieve all the benefits above in your bathroom? At Igloo Surfaces, you’ll find a huge variety of tile effect panels for bathroom walls, from faux marble to chic graphite. With a 10-20 year guarantee, they’re a hardwearing yet easy-to-fit solution!

How to Incorporate Wall Art with Bathroom Panels

How to Incorporate Wall Art with Bathroom Panels

Do you want a bathroom that really stands out? If neutral colours and textures aren’t your style, you may be wondering how to create a bold bathroom that reflects your personality. At Igloo Surfaces, we have the solution – wall art you can achieve with bathroom panels.

We don’t think twice about hanging up art in our living rooms or bedrooms, but art for your bathroom can be tricky to get just right. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the wall art bathroom panels in our breath-taking Arctic Infinity range and explain how you can incorporate this style into your décor.

1. Choose your theme

Our collection includes everything from swimming dolphins to headphone-wearing pineapples – so why not browse the full range to find your perfect fit?

2. Calculate how many panels you’ll need

Bathrooms are rarely a standard shape and size. If your room has features such as alcoves and irregularly spaced windows, you might feel wary about fitting your panels – but don’t worry! It’s quick and easy to cut our panels to size using a fine-toothed jigsaw or hand saw.

To calculate the number of panels you’ll need, ignore any irregular features for now and start measuring the bathroom wall you’d like to cover. Once you have your measurements, you can work out how your ideal number of panels by dividing the width of your wall by the width of your chosen panels. All of our decorative panels measure 1,220mm wide – so unless your bathroom is very big, you’ll probably need 1-3.

3. Style your wall art bathroom panels

Whichever bathroom panel you choose, our Arctic Infinity designs are sure to make a statement in your home. Style the rest of your bathroom simply and let the panel do the talking, or go all-out with themed décor – the choice is completely up to you.

If you want to complement your new panels and create a clean finish that will make the design pop, ceiling panels and edgings are the ideal touches. Our edgings and trims are available in a rainbow of shades, making it easy for you to colour-match your bathroom. Try striking blue to continue a tropical theme!

What is Vinyl Flooring?

What is Vinyl Flooring?

Whether you’re moving into a new home or redecorating your current bathroom, your bathroom floor is one of the most important design decisions you’ll need to make. From splashes to spillages, the floor will have to put up with a lot over the years – especially if you’ve got young children! So, what’s the best material to choose?

There are various options on the market. While carpet may have fallen out of fashion in recent years, wood, tile, and vinyl flooring are all popular choices for a bathroom. They all have their advantages, but at Igloo Surfaces, our range of vinyl floors promises a high-quality appearance and hardwearing finish.

In this blog post, we’ll answer the question ‘what is vinyl flooring?’ and explain why its benefits make it perfect for your bathroom.

What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring is a synthetic material made from PVC (poly vinyl chloride). Although it first entered our homes more than 50 years ago, this material has been developed over the years. Today, luxury vinyl flooring is a cost-effective way to protect your floor while adding serious style to your bathroom (or anywhere else you want to put it).

What are the benefits of vinyl flooring?

Durable, comfortable, and with high slip resistance, vinyl flooring has a wide range of benefits that make it a great alternative to traditional materials such as wood.

1.    Hardwearing and waterproof

Wood may look beautiful, but it’s rarely a sensible choice for a damp environment such as a bathroom. Not only is the wood itself susceptible to mould and mildew, but the cracks between your floorboards can let in water and potentially cause leaks.

Vinyl flooring, on the other hand, is 100% waterproof and incredibly hardwearing. Ideal for high-traffic areas in the home, it will protect your underlying floor from water damage and help reduce the risk of damp in your bathroom.

2.    Available in various styles

From Antique White Ash effect to chic black sparkles, vinyl flooring is available in a range of colours, textures, and style. This versatile material is a great way to personalise your bathroom and make a style statement – all without having to compromise on practicality.

If you love the look of wood but don’t love the thought of having to have it professional treated, maintained, and serviced to prepare it for life in your bathroom, vinyl flooring is the way to go!

3.    Cost-effective and easy to install

Unlike other natural materials such as wood, clay, stone, or ceramic tiles are waterproof. However, they can also be a big investment. According to Checkatrade, it can cost you £200 a day to have tiles installed in your bathroom – and that doesn’t factor in the price of the tiles themselves!

At around £36.91 per metre squared, our vinyl flooring at Igloo Surfaces is much more cost-effective. Even better, it’s quick and easy to install it yourself, saving you the time and money associated with hiring a contractor.

Fitting Bathroom Wall Panels Around Windows

Fitting Bathroom Wall Panels Around Windows

Wall panels are becoming an increasingly popular choice in our kitchens and bathrooms. Cost-effective, hardwearing, and easy to install, PVC panels are available in a range of stunning designs. But if your bathroom isn’t a standard shape and size – and most aren’t – how can you fit your bathroom wall panels properly?

At Igloo Surfaces, one of the most common questions we receive is ‘how do I fit bathroom wall panels around a window?’. Bathroom windows are brilliant, not just for letting in natural light but also for that all-important ventilation.

In this how-to guide, we’ll explain how you can easily customise the shape of your panels to fit your bathroom windows. You can also follow this process to fit your panels around alcoves and other irregularities, too.

1. Calculate how many panels you’ll need

After you’ve chosen your favourite bathroom wall panels, the next step is to calculate how many you’ll need. First, measure the width of the area you’d like to cover and divide this by the width of your chosen panels. You’ll find this information in our product descriptions. Most of our panels are 2,400-2,440mm long but can vary in width.

When measuring your area, ignore your windows. This will ensure you have enough panels and won’t need to split up your design awkwardly.

2. Cut your panels to size

Cutting your panels to size is simple – and best of all, you won’t need any specialist tools! All you’ll need is a fine-toothed jigsaw or hand saw, which will easily cut through our 10mm thick panels.

To prepare for cutting, make sure your panel is on a stable surface. You should always cut from the back, so make sure your panel is facing downwards before you begin.

Next, use a pencil to mark out the piece of the panel you’ll need to remove. To do this, all you need to do measure the position of your window on your wall, including its height and width, and transfer these markings onto one of your panels.

Using your saw, carefully cut out the section for your window. Stand the panel against your wall to double check you’ve got the position right.

3. Install your panels

Now that you’ve removed the section for your window, you’re ready to start installing your panels. Most of our panels fit together using a handy tongue and groove system. This means you can click your panels into one another, reducing the space between them and helping to create a clean finish.

Cover the back of your panel with a high-quality adhesive such as our Igloo adhesive. Make sure you’ve applied the adhesive evenly and that the panel is coated. Then, gently press your panel onto your prepared wall and allow it to set. (The curing time for our adhesive is typically around 48 hours).

Achieve your perfect fit with Igloo Surfaces

Turn your dream bathroom into a reality with our high-quality PVC panels. Whatever the shape or size of your room, we make it easy to customise your coverings and achieve a perfect fit.

Are Bathroom Wall Panels Better than Tiles?

Are Bathroom Wall Panels Better than Tiles?

If you’re redecorating your bathroom, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is what you want to put on your walls. Not only is this an important decision from a design perspective – it’s also key if you want to protect your bathroom walls from water damage, damp and mould.

Two of the most popular options for bathroom walls are PVC panels and tiles. Tiles might be the traditional choice, but if you’re wondering ‘are bathroom wall panels better than tiles?’, there are a number of reasons why you should consider these low-hassle alternatives instead.

In this blog post, we’ll explain why wall panels could be a better choice for your bathroom renovation than tiles.

  1. Bathroom wall panels are easier to install

Retiling a bathroom wall is no mean feat! From preparing the underlying wall to waterproofing your grouting, there are lots of steps to consider if you want to do the job properly. This can be tricky and time-consuming, especially if you don’t have a lot of DIY experience.

By contrast, installing your bathroom wall panels is quick and easy. All you need to do is apply your adhesive on the back side of the panel and stick it in place – a perfect DIY project for beginners and experts alike.

  1. Bathroom wall panels are more cost-effective

If you’ve decided to tile your bathroom, it’s not just the price of the tiles themselves you’ll need to budget for. Whether you plan to install them yourself or hire professional help, the cost of tools, supplies, or labour can quickly add up. According to data from, the average cost of tiling a medium-sized bathroom is £850 – a serious investment for any homeowner.

At Igloo Surfaces, the prices of our high-quality PVC panels start from around £50-60 for a pack of four. This makes it a much more cost-effective option for redecorating your bathroom. Best of all, you won’t need to factor in the cost of specialist supplies or professional installation either!

  1. You can easily chop and change your look

Want to redecorate your bathroom but don’t want to commit to a new look? Whether you’re in rented accommodation, planning to move house soon, or simply like to keep your options open, bathroom wall panels are much more versatile than tiles.

As we mentioned earlier, retiling a bathroom can be a costly – and inconvenient – process. It’s also very difficult to remove tiles intact, which means redecorating can result in a large amount of waste.

With bathroom panels, you can easily switch up your look to suit your style. And if you ever fancy a change? Simply remove your panels intact and replace them with your new choice for a fresh (and faff-free) look.

Upgrade your bathroom today

At Igloo Surfaces we specialise in PVC bathroom wall panels that are high-quality, low maintenance and easy to install. From classic marble effect to bold block colours, we stock a wide range of options to help you create your dream bathroom. Discover the full range at Igloo Surfaces today!

How to Get Water Stains off Bathroom Walls

How to Get Water Stains off Bathroom Walls

Your bathroom walls have a serious occupational hazard – water damage, damp and stains! From water stains on painted walls to hard water damage on your tiles, your bathroom is likely to bear the scars of your family’s daily baths and showers. But how can you remove these stubborn stains from your bathroom walls?

In this blog post, we’ll explain how to get rid of these unsightly stains in just a few simple steps.

What causes water stains on bathroom walls?

Water stains normally occur on painted walls, as opposed to tiles or our 100% waterproof PVC panels. After you have a shower or bath, the steam hangs around in your bathroom if the area isn’t well ventilated. This steam is attracted to cool surfaces such as your walls and ceiling, where it will quickly become condensation. As the condensation drips down your walls, it can leave unpleasant stains that make your bathroom look poorly painted (and even a bit mouldy).

How to remove water stains

  1. Create your cleanser

Cleaning painted walls can be tricky. If you use a cleanser that’s too abrasive, it can strip away the outer layers of paint and make your wall look even worse. That means it’s important to start with a gentle cleanser that will remove water stains but not damage your wall.

If your water stains aren’t too serious, try starting with a solution of soap or washing up liquid and warm water (at a ratio of about 1:2). If your bathroom walls are badly stained, you might need something a little stronger. We recommend filling a spray bottle with a solution of vinegar, lemon juice, and baking soda.

  1. Apply your cleanser

Once you’ve made your solution, it’s time to start removing your water stains. If you’re using the soap solution, soak a soft cloth in your detergent and gently rub at the stains. Always work from the top of your wall down. If you work from the bottom up, you could end up with drip stains from the cleanser, causing the very problem you’re trying to avoid!

If you’re using vinegar, use the spray bottle to apply your solution to the water stains, covering the marks completely. Leave the vinegar on for about an hour. Then, come back and use a damp cloth to wipe the vinegar away. You should notice that a lot of the stain comes away too.

  1. Repeat the process

Depending on the severity of your water stains, you might find that your walls aren’t totally stain-free once they have dried. Don’t worry – it’s normal to have to repeat the cleaning process a couple of times to get rid of your water stains entirely.

Get rid of water stains for good

Water stains blighting your bathroom? There is an alternative to constant cleaning and redecorating. At Igloo Surfaces, our PVC bathroom panels are 100% waterproof, protecting the wall beneath from damp, damage, and stains.

The Pros and Cons of Wood Floors in Your Bathroom

The Pros and Cons of Wood Floors in Your Bathroom

Wood floors have been found in our homes for hundreds of years. Although they’re most common in rooms such as our living rooms, bedrooms and hallways, wood floors are becoming an increasingly popular choice in our bathrooms, too. But if you’re planning to renovate your bathroom, is wood the best material to choose?

In this blog post, we’ll share the key pros and cons of laying a wood floor in your bathroom.

What are the pros of wood floors in your bathroom?

  1. Appearance

Not only does wood feel wonderful underfoot, one of the main reasons why wood is such a popular flooring choice is its beautiful appearance. From pale ash to deep oak, there’s a huge variety of colours, grains and finishes available when it comes to finding the perfect wood for you. This makes it a versatile choice that can add a sophisticated touch to any style of bathroom.

And wood doesn’t just look good. According to research, having natural materials and textures in our homes can also reduce our stress levels. That means wood is ideal if you want to make your bath times even more relaxing!

What are the cons of wood floors in your bathroom?

  1. Not water resistant

Perhaps the biggest con of having wood floors in your bathroom is the fact they aren’t water resistant. Anyone who’s ever forgotten to put the bathmat down will know how wet a bathroom floor can get! If your flooring isn’t water resistant, it could lead to a whole host of problems – from damp patches on your downstairs ceilings to mould and mildew on your floors.

  1. High maintenance

Another con of wood floors is the amount of maintenance they require. Your bathroom floor has to withstand a lot of wear and tear, and to make sure the wood is up to the task, you’ll need to treat it with specialist oils on a regular basis. This will help to prevent water damage and keep your floor looking its best.

  1. Expensive

If you’re looking for wood floor bathroom pros and cons, one of the most considerable cons is the expense. Although the cost will depend on the size of your bathroom, the average price of laying a solid wood floor in the UK is between £1,250 and £2,000. That’s around the same price as installing a new bathroom suite!

Get the wood effect with vinyl flooring

Love the look of wood but don’t love the cost? For an affordable – and practical – alternative to traditional wood, discover our range of wood-effect vinyl flooring.

Just as beautiful as the real thing, but far more hard-wearing, our flooring is 100% waterproof and requires no specialist treatment. Simply install your chosen panels using our innovative tongue-and-click system and enjoy the look of genuine wood with none of the drawbacks.

Best of all, our flooring promises high slip resistance and comes with a 10-year guarantee. This makes it perfect for high-traffic areas such as busy family bathrooms.


How to Achieve an Exposed Brick Wall Look in Your Bathroom

How to Achieve an Exposed Brick Wall Look in Your Bathroom

Over the last ten years, exposed brick walls have become a huge interior design trend. A stylish addition to both rustic and industrial décor alike, brick is a wonderful way to add texture to your home – and it’s now found everywhere from our bedrooms and living rooms to our kitchens.

But if you want to update your bathroom with the exposed brick wall look, it can be tricky to know where to begin. In this blog post, we’ll explain how you can create an exposed brick wall bathroom, no matter what your walls are made of.

  1. Choose your brick effect PVC panels

Creating an exposed brick bathroom can pose a number of challenges. If your walls aren’t made from brick in the first place, it’s obviously impossible to achieve this look naturally. But even if your walls are brick, stripping away layers of paint and plaster to reveal the brickwork underneath isn’t easy.  Even worse, you could risk damaging your walls during the process.

Another potential problem is the fact that brick isn’t 100% waterproof. Because of the way most houses are built, this isn’t an issue for your external walls, but it could be disastrous in a room as damp as your bathroom!

The solution? Brick effect PVC wall panels. At Igloo Surfaces, our PVC panels are 100% waterproof, making them suitable for bathrooms and shower stalls. From classic brick red to cool cream, you’re bound to find a brick effect wall panel that provides the authentic look you’re after, making them an ideal alternative for your exposed brick bathroom.

  1. Decide where to create your feature wall

The next step for achieving your brick wall look is to decide where you want to create your feature wall. Unlike real brick, our PVC panels are suitable for every wall in your bathroom because they’re waterproof.  That means you can install them behind your bath, around your shower cubicle, or even embrace the all-brick look!

Once you’ve decided where you’d like to put your brick panels, you can easily find out how many panels you’ll need. Simply measure the width of the area you’d like to cover and divide this number by the width of your brick effect panels (normally 250 mm). If necessary, cut your panels to fit your space exactly once they have arrived.

  1. Install your brick effect wall panels

Now, it’s time to install your PVC panels. The panels fit together using a tongue-and-groove system that helps to eliminate any gaps between them. All you need to do is apply your adhesive to the back of each panel, apply it to your wall, then repeat the process until you have achieved your chosen look.

Lastly, we recommend adding a small bead of silicone in between each of your panels. This will help to ensure your panels are 100% water resistant – protecting the wall beneath from damp, mould, and mildew.

Create your brick-effect bathroom

Our PVC panels provide a quick, easy and cost-effective way to achieve an exposed brick bathroom. Most importantly, they combine the sought-after appearance with long-lasting water-resistance in your bathroom. Whatever your personal style, discover our full range of bathroom wall panels today!
